Errors during npm install

I just cloned the CoreUI React Admin Template. When I run npm install I am getting the following warnings plus errors:

$ npm install

Any idea what’s going on and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.


I Found a fix looking around at the npm libraries.

If you look at:

You will see that npm install has to be run with “–legacy-peer-deps” in order to work.

If you get problems with node-sass, update the version to 5.0.0. 4.x.x does not work with latest node version.

Best regards,
Jørgen S.

Thanks neno91! I was reluctant to just use the '--legacy-peer-deps' option that was suggested in the error message, but that note in the doc for enzyme-adapter-react-17 makes it clear that it is ok.
